The Destiny Windows Desktop

Like many people, we’re eagerly awaiting Bungie’s newest title, Destiny. Flickr user Jacob Caughfield is especially excited, and customised his desktop in anticipation. If you like the look, here’s how you can get it.


The Microbus Desktop

We’ve highlighted a few of joergermeister‘s desktops before, but this one has “get in the party bus and hit the road” written all over its flat, minimal look. Here’s how he set it up, and what you’ll need to set it up yourself.


The Cascading Desktop

Flickr user Profound Grafx has a thing for docks and launchers. This desktop is a testament to that obsession, but it also keeps games, productivity tools, websites, media, and more neatly separated and organised. Here’s how it’s all set up.


The Minimal Academic Desktop

Reader sgosp3 wanted a desktop that was minimal and helped him focus on his research work. He built this Windows desktop so he has plenty of space to work, and the right tools easily in reach. Here’s how he did it.


The Kit Kat Car Desktop

Reader ScoobSTi Doesn’t Have an STi‘s Windows desktop is interesting, even if you don’t care for car wallpapers. Check out those Android Kit Kat-themed icons and the Google search bar on the desktop. Here’s how he set it up.


The WinYosemite Desktop

Reader Saifali caught Apple’s unveiling of OS X “Yosemite” last week and wanted to bring at least some of the look to his Windows machine. The right wallpaper and a little Rainmeter is all it takes. Here’s how he set it up.


The Fusion Desktop

Windows: Flickr user Alexandru Tropenpflanze‘s desktop is a great example of what you can do with Rainmeter in Windows, and it’s not difficult to set up. Shortcuts, a few well-placed widgets and some useful information is all it takes. Here’s what you’ll need to make one of your monitors look this way.


The Renaissance Desktop

Flickr user AFGDesign has an awesome workspace and an awesome desktop for this Windows machine. Here’s how he set it all up, and what you need to duplicate it at home.


The Galactic Desktop

Mac: Reader ninjacharlie uses GeekTool to keep his Twitter feed and the song he’s listening to embedded in his wallpaper while he works, so he doesn’t need another app to keep track of them. Here’s how you can do it too.


The Slowmo Linux Desktop

Flickr user José put together this good-looking Linux Mint desktop. It features media controls and a simple launcher at the bottom. Here’s how he set it all up.
